OUR DESIGN TIERS

Our design framework consists of three tiers of creative offerings. Each tier enriches and builds on the previous tier. Focus on one, two or all 3 tiers, depending on your campaign objectives. Together, our design framework of tiers allows us to deliver a holistic campaign with maximum impact for our clients.

1. AMBIENT

Ambient design sets the tone and visually announces that the campaign has arrived. It’s our creative foundation, our festive sense of place – enriching and transformative.

2. IMMERSIVE

Immersive design occurs when we imagine and create a captivating journey that customers take when travelling under, over or through decorated zones within our festive environments.

3. EXPERIENTIAL

Experiential activations entice customers by engaging one or more of their senses. This may be achieved through the layering of action-driven tasks, challenges or quests that bring the campaign to life.
